The best of the Star Trek movie franchise is coming back to Blu-ray and it promises to look and sound better than ever before.
In celebration of Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary, this summer Paramount Home Media will re-release Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in a new Blu-ray Edition that will include both the theatrical version and the slightly longer Director’s Cut available for the first time in high-definition.
The film has been remastered in 4K resolution and the disc will feature over two hours of supplements from previous DVD and Blu-ray editions and “The Genesis Effect: Engineering The Wrath of Khan,” an all-new 30-minute retrospective documentary that tells the story of how this classic sci-fi adventure came to be through new cast and crew interviews and archival footage and photographs.

Blu-ray Box Art
I love that new artwork. It’s the Mondo poster art created by Tyler Stout. Guess this means I’ll have to part with my copy of the previous Wrath Of Khan Blu-ray because I’ve always preferred the superior Director’s Edition.
The new Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – Director’s Cut Blu-ray will be available for sale on June 7, 2016.
